Wide Release

Us

Loren: I slept on Get Out, which was a mistake. Won’t be making that one again. This looks amazing and horrifying and I’m really hoping it lives up to the hype. And it should, between Jordan Peele’s emergence as the modern voice of horror and the incredible cast I think we’re in for a terrifying treat. Super in.

RDT: I want to see this movie. But I’m scared to see this movie. I don’t know what to do…..

Rick:  


 

Limited Release

Money

Loren: Nah. I’ve seen this movie before.

RDT: I think I will save my….. Money…… and skip this movie.

Rick: So, a slightly more sinister Korean version of Wall Street? I think I’m good.


Wheely

Loren: If this isn’t one of the more blatant rip-offs I’ve ever seen I’ll be shocked.

RDT: If I don’t have any desire to see the movie this is ripping off, what makes you think I do for this??? Clunky wording, but you get what I’m saying.

Rick:  Continue reading

Episode #163 – You don’t put kids in fridges…..

Considering this is a pop culture NEWS podcast, the guys spend far too much time talking about 20-year-old movies. 

All that, what we watched and more tangents.

Wonder Park

Loren: The concept here is a lot of fun, the execution doesn’t do it for me. To say I’m not the demo for this is putting it lightly.

RDT: I am not a child nor do I have a child. Not to say animated properties must be only for children. Just saying this one seems to be.

Rick: This one is definitely for younger kids. Since I do not have any I’m unlikely to check this one out.

Jen: This does nothing for me, but looks like something my 5-year old would drag me to the theater for so…


Captive State

Loren: I had only seen TV spots for this and they looked horrible. I kept thinking, ”how many boats does John Goodman have?” It kinda looked that crappy invasion show on USA with Sawyer from LOST. Anyway this looks so much better than that. I’ll keep it on my radar.

RDT: Definitely in for this, maybe even this weekend if my local AMC is showing it. I got a gift card burning a hole in my pocket!

Rick: Please be good. We need more smart sci-fi.

Jen: John Goodman is looking good! I like the idea of this and hope it’s more Arrival and less every other invasion Sci-fi.


Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase

Loren: This felt a little cheap to me. Like not quite a major studio feature and not quite a Nickelodeon original. Once again I’m not the demographic here so I think I’ll pass.

RDT: I saw the trailer for this the other day. Looks harmless enough and I’m never gonna see it.

Rick: I kept thinking while watching the trailer: “Is this a sequel? Wasn’t there a Nancy Drew movie like two years ago?” 1) No. It’s a relaunch. 2) That Nancy Drew movie I was thinking of came out twelve freaking years ago. I may never watch this incarnation, but it looks pretty charming.

Jen: I found this surprisingly cute. I can’t say I’ll be running out to see this, but I could see watching this on a streaming device in the future. Continue reading

Let’s Talk About The Final Avengers: Endgame Trailer!

Wow. What can I even say here. This is the absolute culmination of ten years and 21(!) films. What an insane undertaking. Thankfully because of all that I don’t really have to get as in depth with the back stories for all of these characters like I usually do because, c’mon, you already know all of that right? So without further ado, Let’s Talk About The Final Avengers: Endgame Trailer! Continue reading

Episode #162 – We Saw Captain Marvel

This week the guys saw Captain Marvel and shockingly they have opinions (don’t worry, they’re mostly positive). They also talk all the week’s entertainment news. With stories like:

  • A female centric reboot of Rush Hour is in the works and you get one guess as to who is playing the Chris Tucker role.
  • Jay and Silent Bob update
  • Arrow will end with a 10 episode run this fall because we are very smart.
  • Disney+ will include ‘entire motion picture library’
  • Zack Snyder is making a zombie movie for Netflix
  • Amazon’s Lord of the Rings show to be set during the second age
  • Amazon also adapting Port of Earth
  • Cobra Kai season 2 trailer
  • Galaxy’s Edge opens May 31st for Disneyland and August 29th for WDW.
  • Matt Smith says “As far as he can tell, he’s not in the next Star Wars movie.” Unless he is…?
  • Idris Elba will replace Will Smith as Deadshot in The Suicide Squad
  • SHAZAM is…. good….?
  • International Dark Phoenix trailer is a much better trailer for what still looks like a mediocre movie.
  • Emma Watson up for a “lead role” in Black Widow standalone flic
  • Endgame is picture locked

All that, what we watched and this ridiculous picture of RDT!

Captain Marvel

Rick:


Limited Release

We Are Boats

Loren: I know there’s only two cast members from Westworld in that but it feels like they shot this in between takes. Also, it looks awful. Pass.

The Lady™: Is there a stronger word for “meh”?

Rick: So it’s Highway to Heaven with bureaucracy? No thanks.


3 Faces

Loren: The lead actress looks like one of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis’ kids. Other than that, I don’t think I have any feelings about this one.

The Lady™: I really enjoy the bit with the guy and the car horn. Other than that, I don’t really understand what’s going on.

Rick: You wouldn’t know it from the trailer, but that movie actually takes place in three different time periods. That idea is far more interesting than what the trailer portrays. I’ll keep an eye out, but, trailer houses, can we not bury the lead? Continue reading

A Madea Family Funeral

Loren: How in the hell are these movies still getting made? One maybe two sure, but this the 11th(!!!) movie with this character in it. Does anyone like them?

RDT: Save for the rare commercial, I have never seen a frame of Madea footage. I sure as hell aint starting at #11!

Rick: I pretty much expect a new Madea movie to wander into theaters every couple of years until the end of time. Even if the title character actually dies in this one, these movies practically print money. You know that in like five years we’ll get hit with A Madea Resurrection.

Jen: Pssst I hear she dies in this one and that this is killing off the franchise. Not sure that improves the odds of anyone seeing it, but there you go.


Greta

Loren: At least they are doing something a little different with the stalker genre. I like everyone involved, if I can remember to I’ll check this out down the road when I’m in the mood for a thriller.

RDT: Good cast? Yes. Interesting premise? Yes. Do I care? Nope. Sorry. I know it’s dickish. But that trailer did nothing for me.

Rick: This ticks so many boxes for me. I’ll definitely see it in theaters.

Jen: Isabelle Huppert is so fantastically creepy in everything she does. This feels like a perfect fit. I’ll keep it on the radar for sure.


Limited Release

Woman at War

Loren: This looks interesting enough but I can’t see myself searching out an Icelandic “fighting the man” black comedy anytime soon. Maybe if they do an American remake down the road but probably not. Hey RDT, who’s in the remake? Frances McDormand?

RDT: Frances McDormand is in everything. My pick is Annette Bening. She’s due for a career resurgence, and I’m sure she’s gonna get one post-Captain Marvel. Oh, umm, this movie looks fine.

Rick: This looks interesting/irreverent enough that I’ll keep a lookout for it down the line. Also, maybe Holly Hunter for the remake?

Jen: What Rick said and let’s mix it up a bit, I haven’t seen Halle Berry do her “dressed down” thing in while. Continue reading
